Decision Makers Step Up Please!

Is it just me? Really is it ME? I seem to be stuck in situations for years and years, where firm decisions made by confident humans are really hard to come by. Its like Chindiana Jones and the Adventures of Indecision!! Firm calls made by strong minds are as hard to come by as that elusive Bigfoot or the Loch Ness Monster.

The buck passing season has begun folks - Hut! The decision to buy the pantry coffee machine has been passed from Operations to HR! HR punts the ball up to Management who slides down the line and back tosses the call to Finance. Finance grabs the ball firmly, stands tall, looks down field at everyone and says confidently "Fuck off, no budget this year. Tapau coffee from home. Here have a plastic bag and a straw".

A wail of protest comes up from the crowd! The Union calls for a meeting and sets up a Committee, the Committee appoints a Chairman who appoints to 3-legged muskrat as Special Projects Head to ensure that the elusive coffee machine MUST GET INTO THE PANTRY AT ALL COST!

The muskrat looks tearfully out the window and as a Hindi song plays out cheerfully from the pantry radio he realizes that he's alone and fuked anyway - No coffee machine, it's HIS FAULT. If he DOES get that coffee machine, the Chairman and Union Committee are hoisted up as champions. He turns around to the baby lizard peering out from behind the fridge and says "I'm nominating YOU as the Special Task Force to the Special Projects Head on acquisition of the pantry coffee machine..."

"Sigh...ball carriers are targets too!"
